If you retract one time, you can retract another time and so on. And in case of Ubuntu, they seem able to retract an impressive frequency.
Ubuntu: "We will utilize wayland"
Ubuntu: "We need to retract: we will utilize Mir because wayland repeats X's mistake"
Ubuntu: "We need to retract again: we will utilize Mir, but wayland does not suffers the same X problems"
Ubuntu: "Mir is protocol agnostic (?) and tailored around unity, so API can be changed every times it needs."
Ubuntu: "We need to retract: API no more begin unstable... bla bla bla"
Who can be so stupid to trust in ubuntu's declaration one more time?
I somewhat agree, but:Quote:
That said, it would be up to the Canonical team to supply those patches in the first place, but there should be no reason for the KWin team to reject those contributions outright simply because they're distro specific.
If Canonical is supplying the patches, and Canonical is the only ones using the patches, what does it even need to go upstream for? The only real reason would be to get upstream to maintain it over time, so Canonical doesn't have to do so anymore. That is asking them to take on more work just to help out Canonical, and it doesn't seem like they are in the mood to do so right now.
Edit: sorry, i guess Rahul already made the same point above.
But i dont think you actually read that because you were busy shitstorming :/
So instead of carrying on and help to solve problems in and with the linux community people keep the mudslinging going powered by the KDE guys :/
This isn't mudslinging, this is trying to help you see why people are so pissed and why Canonical won't be forgiven any time soon. This isn't kindergarten, an apology doesn't solve everything.
